Question about 1993 Nissan Altima

1 Answer

How do I drop the fuel tank on a 1993 Nissan Altima?

My 1993 Nissan Altima was leaking Gas from where the fuel lines come off the tank (out of view) when he turned on the ignition. the car would run fine but still leaked gas (a large amount). I tried to drop the tank but it is held up by the exhaust system as far as I can tell. Since that would cause more problems, I was hoping to get some suggestions.

    Thank you for the help! The fuel tank protector taht was connected to to the tank did not have to be removed. Only the front most protector that was connected to the vehicle.

  1. Drain the fuel from the fuel tank.
  2. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  3. Remove the fuel pump access plate beneath the rear seat.
  4. Label and disconnect the fuel hoses and electrical harness.
  5. Raise and safely support the rear of the vehicle.
  6. Label all fuel lines for installation reference.
  7. On 240SX models, remove the exhaust center tube, driveshaft, differential carrier and rear suspension member.
  8. Disconnect the fuel filler hose and vent hose.
  9. Remove the fuel tank protector assembly.
  10. Remove the fuel tank band retaining bolts while supporting the fuel tank with a transmission jack.
  11. Slowly lower the tank assembly from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the tank assembly on the vehicle.
  2. Install the fuel tank retaining bands and tighten the bolts to 20-27 ft. lbs. (26-36 Nm).
  3. Install the fuel tank protector assembly.
  4. Connect the fuel filler hose and vent hose. Tighten the hose clamps securely.
  5. On 240SX models, install the exhaust center tube, driveshaft, differential carrier and rear suspension member.
  6. Lower the rear of the vehicle.
  7. Connect the fuel hoses and electrical harness.
  8. Install the fuel pump access plate beneath the rear seat.
  9. Fill the fuel tank with a few gallons of fresh fuel.
  10. Pressurize the fuel system and check for leaks.
I hope this helps... If the exhaust as been changed or modified it might be necessary to loosen.

How do i depressurize the gas tank? on a 1995 nissan altima


HI,
If you mean the fuel line,start the engine, then remove the fuel pump relay , when not enough fuel pressure to run the engine, it will die and line will be depressurized. The tank itself only has minimal pressure which is vented. Removing the filler (gas) cap will relieve any excess pressure in the tank...Mike

How to replace fuel pump


Fuel pump is a complete assembly set inside the fuel tank. You'll need to drop the tank, (you might want to remove the gas FIRST) unplug the wiring, disconnect battery, all fuel, return, and vapor lines, etc. You should get someone experienced if this is your first time. It's a big job.

My ALTIMA WAS RUNNING AND THEN SHUT OFF, IT CRANKS BUT WONT START


Turn the key to on, and listen under the car to see if you can hear the fuel pump running. or you could take a rubber mallet and tap the bottom of the gas tank while someone is turning the ignition over. I would almost bet you have a faulty fuel pump.
